Tottenham have a number of a few players out on loan at the moment including the likes of Oliver Skipp, Troy Parrott, Juan Foyth and Ryan Sessegnon.

While Parrott is yet to get on the scoresheet for Millwall, the striker reportedly registered his first assist for the Championship side in their 2-1 defeat to Coventry on Friday.

The teenager, who was brought on at half-time, was tripped inside the box with 15 minutes left on the clock, with Jed Wallace stroking home the resulting penalty.

The report reveals that Foyth is now being primarily used as a defensive midfielder by Unai Emery at Villarreal and is thriving in the new role.

However, the 22-year-old will now have more competition for his place in the side, since the La Liga club have signed Tottenham man Etienne Capoue this week.

It is also revealed that Ryan Sessegnon has managed to build on his good start to his loan spell at Hoffenheim and is getting regular football under his belt.

Meanwhile, Skipp continues to be an ever-present in Norwich’s midfield and has been one of the Canaries’ best players this season as they push for promotion.

However, Cameron Carter-Vickers has had somewhat of a nightmare since his move to Bournemouth as the defender still remains sidelined with an ankle injury.

The centre-back is yet to make a single competitive appearance for the Cherries since moving to the south coast.

Spurs Web Opinion

Many Spurs fans always suspected that Foyth might be better suited to a midfield role than centre-back and it looks like that might well prove to be the case. It is a shame that Villarreal have an option to buy the 22-year-old at the end of the season as I still believe he could go on to be a top player.
